The story of the buffet

They have been called sideboards, buffets, credenzas, or simply cupboards, but once you know the history of sideboards and buffets, you will agree: you need one

Sideboards were introduced during the last quarter of the 18th Century. Before then, dining was done in a ground-floor parlour, which doubled as a sitting and dining room.

Planks sitting on trestles were first used for serving in the medieval period, and it wasn’t until English designer Robert Adam devised a three-part ensemble,

consisting of an oblong table flanked by two pedestal cupboards mounted with urns that sideboards came into their own.”

Coming into their own” means that the sideboards transformation from “the boards” to an ornate piece of furniture designed to reflect the social

status of the home (or manor) owner. While they still maintained the purpose of holding food after service, they also became storage places for silver and other treasures

. Shelves were sometimes added so that silver could be on display at all times. Mirrors were also added to help reflect the light and highlight all sides of the pieces on display.

While most of us don’t have servants standing at the ready to bring food from the sideboard, we know this piece of furniture is an important piece both for

storage and entertainment. They hold our fancier serving pieces that don’t generally go in the everyday rotation of dishes and provide a way to enhance the décor

in our dining rooms both in their design and in the ability to use the flat surface.
